Abhishek to get Aishwarya's name tattooed?

Bollywood’s male stars seem to have found a definitive way of showing their love to their better half - getting her name tattooed. Saif Ali Khan has Kareena Kapoor’s name inked on his wrist in Devanagri and recently Hrithik Roshan too got wifey Sussane’s name tattooed.

Now, Abhishek Bachchan, the least expected of all, is rumoured to be planning to get Ash’s name tattooed on his wrist. However, Abhi is said to be in a dilemma over the language in which he should get Ash’s name inked. Should it be in English or in Hindi or Devanagri?

Still, Abhi’s decision to tattoo Ash’s name comes as a surprise because he’s not given to public display of affection even after his marriage to Ash. So there is a chance that these rumours of him getting the tattoo might be incorrect.

Till recently, Ash and Abhi were shooting for Mani Ratnam’s film Raavan in South India.

Meanwhile, Ash is presently down with high fever and “flu like symptoms”, as revealed by Amitabh Bachchan on his blog.

“Aishwarya has taken ill and is down with chest infection and flu like symptoms. She had a high fever yesterday, but is settling down today,” Big B posted on his blog on Saturday from Singapore.

Kareena says no to Gurinder Chadha, again

Kareena Kapoor has her roots firmly sunk in India and Bollywood. International fame is not for her. No, thank you. At least not if it’s Gurinder Chadha who wants to launch her in the west.
“Three years ago Gurinder wanted Kareena to act in Bride & Prejudice. Kareena naturally thought it was the lead role. She was shocked when she realised the director wanted her to play Aishwarya's youngest sister,” says a source. “She had turned down the author-backed central role in Deepa Mehta's Water. And here she was being offered the fourth lead. She vowed never to work with Gurinder again.”
So when Gurinder offered Kareena her new film, she immediately said no.
"Who offers a role is not important. What is being offered is important,” says Kareena. “I'm really not that enthused by the idea of going international unless it's something really big. I don't even know if Gurinder's offer was with Johnny Depp. I was just not interested." Ok Bebo, we believe you. Not!

Saif Ali Khan wants to patch-up with Shahid Kapur!

Saif Ali Khan is riding the crest now as his debut production Love Aaj Kal has been received well. But instead of resting on his laurels, the actor-turned-producer says he finds a huge change in him.
He is no longer anxious about 'rival' film Kaminey releasing soon. "My film has already worked. I don't want to sound false, but now I realise that in the past I might have made an irresponsible comment of having been offered a role in Kaminey. But the fact is, I was not. Vishal (Bhardwaj) had just mentioned the film to me. I don't want it to be a personal battle any longer. We are all not friends (him, Vishal and Shahid Kapoor, hero of Kaminey) for obvious reasons but I do think Vishal is a fantastic director. I have only heard good things about Shahid, from others and also from Kareena. He is a strong boy. I have learnt early in life that one cannot benefit from someone else's failure."
Saif candidly admits that he has gone through some of the worst phases of insecurity but those are a thing of the past. "When Kunal Kapoor or any other director I have worked with didn't repeat me, there was a sense of insecurity. In the 18 years of my career, I have gone through angst. But now it doesn't matter. Like when Siddharth (Anand) opted for Ranbir Kapoor in his next film, I no longer felt bad, probably because I was successful doing my own production. I had the confidence to wish him best," he says.
There is one more major transformation in Saif's life. "I've become more Buddhist in my approach to my career. I realise that if I am doing well now, it's only a part of the cycle. This is transitory."
And Saif nurses a secret dream: "I want to lead the life my father (Mansoor Ai Khan Pataudi) does. He has been top of his game but he knew when to walk away and how much of it to take seriously. I absolutely adore his approach towards life. Not many know that my father has been the strongest influence on me. He is a tiger and it has always been his rules that he lived by."
